HOT Lanes Work to Narrow Route 123 in Tysons
Gazing into the crystal ball of congestion, we see clouds forming over Tysons Corner. It's the focal point of the most mega of the Northern Virginia megaprojects: the Beltway HOT lanes and the Metrorail extension. But for now, the vision is focusing on the HOT lanes work.
Starting next week and continuing through November, the left lane in each direction on Route 123 will be closed around the Beltway interchange so workers can build two new bridge piers to connect with the highway. There will be two through lanes and one merge lane in each direction on Route 123.
And there will very likely be delays during the morning and evening rushes. Watch for the lane closures to start about 500 feet to the east and west of the Beltway.
The lanes will reopen for the big holiday season in Tysons, but then they'll close again early next year so the reconstruction can be completed. I plan to write about this on Sunday's Commuter page in The Post Metro section.
But look also at the Virginia Megaprojects Web site. It's been revised lately to make it more user friendly. You'll find drop down menus with lots of information about the the big projects underway in Northern Virginia, including the Metrorail extension, the I-95 widening and the Telegraph Road/Beltway interchange reconstruction.
